Careless management, could work 24hrs straight
Intervenor (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 11 March 2018
Management is careless about staff. I was compliance champion, which these roles offer no extra perk. Noted concerns to the regional manager while doing compliance, the solution was to hide it.
If a staff called in it’s in your hands to manage clients and try to fill their shift. If no luck you could be forced into working 24hours straight.
Full time contracts do become available frequently.
Staff are very disrespectful to each other, will gang up and set up other staff for med errors.
Clients best interest aren’t often the priority. Example, staff and team leader would allow client to eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you need a day off in advance you have to trade shifts, can’t book days off. If no one will take the trade it is sick time.
Casual relief staff have no flexibility, you are only able to provide availability 4 times a year and they can put you in whatever they want. If you call a month in advance as a RELIEF staff and say your unavailable they basically say too bad. Oh and the availability change that can only happen 4 times a year can only change every 4 months.
Do not recommend, staff call and harass you on your days off for help because on call doesn’t know the answer and teamleaders will not answer their phones if they aren’t in.
Full time is easy to obtain
